  1. Instead of porting it over without much thought, they took the time to get something working that took advantage of the Wii's strengths.
  2. Need for Speed Carbon for the Wii falls a bit flat in certain areas but it’s a good attempt at bringing us a fresh new twist to this underground racing series.
  3. It’s a shame that EA decided to drop the intense cop chases from Most Wanted. Carbon is still a very addicting game even though the drift races don’t work quite as well as they should.

    The best driving game for Wii but that is not saying much. It looks and sounds good, though. The control system takes some time to get used to. [Feb 2007]
  5. The controls are new and innovative, but to a large percentage of racing fans they won’t seem to fit.

Granted, the 360 version was vastly superior for graphics and feel (emphasis on feel), but this is a solid racer for the Wii and similar in most of the ways that count. People who complain about the controls cannot be trusted- there are 5 schemes that all play differently so at least one of them should work for anybody. Overall an 8 out of 10 for being an inferior port of a near perfect game. Full Review »
